Awesome. Did you do this by making impressions with the pyramids,
or did you do "lost plastic" casting?

I made impressions with pyramids.  I was wanting to cast another thing, but if I'm bothering to run the furnace I want to have two molds to pour, so I fell back to my default answer as to what to make with a new fabrication technique.  My molding technique was super quick and primitive, hence the many sand inclusions corrupting the castings and/or achieving a cool aesthetic effect.
